It was awesome. Very casual and open with the environment being a great inspiration. Really helped stay grounded to narration vs the flash of the boards and its accuracy. Would do again
Veleree is delightful and a very positive instructor while giving very helpful advice on the project you are working on. Even though I am a senior, I have not had drawing experience and I did not feel intimidated at all. I was pleased with my drawing.

Butterflies feel like messengers from another world, fluttering so delicately and hovering around us. If one lands on you, it might leave a light trail of dusty pollen. Their wings feel so gentle against our skin. Butterflies seem to move through realms, bringing us knowledge of something significant. Many see them as a symbol of a loved one reaching out. I hope this image greets you with that same tenderness.

Hi everyone. This acrylic 8x24 is named after my wife - "Jessica's Tulips". I bought her a bouquet of flowers, and while on the dining table, this is actually what I saw and well had to sketch and paint. I won 2nd place local county fair. Thank you for looking, hope you enjoy. [email protected]

This is a wet felted piece. I made this one as an example for my Beginning Wet Felting students. It can be finished in one sitting. It uses a natural batting of Cheviot wool for the first two layers, then numerous colors of Merino for the bunny and colored background, and then lots, and lots of locks for all the bushes and flowers.

20x24 mixed media on canvasI knew for two weeks before hand that I wanted to try a cityscape with a crow in it while utilizing texture paste and acrylic ink, to add to my new decor. I was experiencing sadness of loss one day and just had to paint. My mood is definitely reflected in this despite my original intentions. I added the old pocket watch in the crows mouth for the illustration of the stolen time.
